From last night’s PBS NewsHour. Conservative David Brooks and liberal Mark Shields also pondered the question of who will step up in the Republican Party to take on far-far-far-right-wing Ted Cruz. So far, the answer is “noone.”

This is about the Palinization of parts of the GOP. This is not about passing legislation, not about…we should craft some compromise…with the other side. This is about making a statement that will sound good on Fox. And so, they want to make a statement that will sound good on TV or will sound good at a town meeting, but it’s not actually about governing…
